3-Year-Old Deaf Boy Hears Dad’s Voice For Very First Time, I’ve Got Chills From His Reaction!

Grayson Clamp, from Charlotte, North Carolina, was born without the auditory nerves that carry sounds from the ears to the brain. Initially, he was fitted with a cochlear implant; but sadly without nerves it was ineffective.

But when he was just three-years-old, doctors at the University of North Carolina’s School of Medicine gave him a very special device: an auditory brain stem implant. Though not commonly used on children, it’s been known to be effective. It’s basically a microchip implanted at the base of his brain.

When his doctors finally switched on the experimental cochlear implant, Grayson was able to hear for the very first time in his entire life. His most touching immediate reaction was to his dad’s voice… he’s completely astounded!

Share this beautiful moment with your friends and family!
